  • The printer has only one slot for a SIMM upgrade. If you want to increase your printed memory again after you have already installed a SIMM module in the slot, you will need to remove the previously installed SIMM.
  • Addtional memory is useful and may be necessary if you are using the Page Protection function.

  • (For HL-1440 users) The resident memory of HL-1440 printer is 2 MB, so you need to expand the memory by adding a SIMM to print at 1200 dpi.
  • (For HL-1470N users) You have to expand the printer memory by adding a SIMM to use the FTP/IPP protocol.
